Chemotherapy and your vagina, ovaries, uterus and cervix

Chemotherapy in your pelvis can have a few unexpected or uncomfortable impacts on your vagina, urinary tract, and hormones.

Urethral cancer

Urethral cancer is an uncommon form of cancer, with its own set of challenges in diagnosing and treating because of its rarity. Urethral cancer has been reported in women from age about 19 onwards, but is most common in elderly women.

Pelvic radiation therapy

Having radiation therapy on your pelvis can cause some unwelcome problems that can linger, like a dry, thickened vaginal wall, lack of moisture, and lack of flexibility.
